Surprise Your Wife for Christmas: Top Three Gift Ideas for the Woman You Love!

Don’t you dare buy her household necessities! Every woman say’s that’s what she wants, simply because money is tight and it is what is needed, but she really does not want that new washing machine! Nor does she want the new wok or vacuum cleaner!
She wants to be romanced, she wants a gift that comes from your heart, not something that you just picked up at the local discount store. You really need to spend time choosing the right gift for her, after all, she spends her life taking care of you!

Top Three Gift Ideas for the Woman You Love:

# 1 ~ The Gift of Relaxation!

She’s tired, she needs some relaxation, and you know it! W  hat can you give her that will help her relax and show how much you care? Of Course she’d love a week end at the spa, but if that isn’t an affordable gift, give her a day at the spa right at home!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Candles – I would recommend going with a light scent, such as vanilla or lavender. Relaxing is the idea, so you don’t want to use a spicy candle that would only invigorate her senses! Set candles out around the bedroom and bathroom. Use maybe 6 in each room. You want the room to be light enough to see, but dim enough to become drowsy and relaxed.

Scented Massage Oil – The main reason people visit spas is for the massage! Give your wife a full body massage for at least thirty minutes, using lightly scented massage oils, her tight stressed out muscles are sure to thank you for it!

Scented Bath Bubbles – After her massage session is over, run a hot bath with scented bath bubbles and allow her the privacy to soak in it for at least thirty minutes.
Scented Lotion – Be sure to leave the lotion near the bath, so she can re hydrate her skin after soaking in the tub.

Chocolate – No spa would be complete without chocolate! Leave a dish next to the bath tub for her to nibble on while she soaks

# 2 ~ Jewelry!

Women love jewelry just as much as men love toys! There is no getting around it. Jewelry makes a women feel beautiful and if it comes from the right gift giver, it makes her feel loved. BUT and this is a BIG BUT! Don’t buy the women you love cheap jewelry! I’m not saying you have to spend a million bucks, but don’t buy it off the dollar rack at your local discount store!

Top favorites are:

Rings- Of Course, the die hard favorite of all women! Don’t forget “Diamonds are forever”

Necklaces – A birthstone, mother of pearl or diamond are sure to be a hit!!
Watches – Being on time is important, so help make sure she’s is stylishly on time all the time!

# 3 ~ Shopping

Most women with families simply don’t take the time to shop for themselves. They are always so busy making sure that Johnny has clean socks or Susie has a new dress for the spring dance and of course budgeting to make sure there is enough money to cover all that. Offer to watch the kids for an entire Saturday and allow her to go shopping for herself! Go Online and purchase gift cards from her favorite stores and then send her off to the mall! Or if she’s an online shopper, offer to take the kids out for the day and give her the house and computer to herself to set off on a shopping spree right from home!

The most important thing to remember is she will love the gift if it truly comes from your heart. Don’t send your secretary to the mall, go yourself!

Shaving Tips for Men

Shaving can be a pain, but it doesn’t have to be painful. With proper tools and technique, you can take the chore out of daily shaving and transform the process into a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

To start with, you’ll need to give yourself plenty of time. Rushing through the job is not only going to put you at higher risk for razor burn and cuts, but you may miss a spot or two and end up looking worse than if you hadn’t shaved at all. If this means getting up 10 minutes earlier, so be it. You won’t miss those extra minutes of sleep and it will pay off with the comfort of a smooth face for the rest of the day.

Second, make sure you use a quality razor. I recommend Gillette Mach 3 or any other razor from the Gillette Mach series. These are excellent razors, and the only major problem with them is that people don’t replace the cartridges as often as they should. This is understandable, considering how expensive they are, but your face will suffer as a result. If cost is a concern, you can buy them in bulk on eBay for much less than the retail price. I have done this before, buying a two-year supply all at once. I replace the cartridge every two weeks and I shave every other day. I don’t pay attention to the blue strip signifying the “life” of the cartridge. If it feels rough, I throw it away.

As for shaving cream, you’ll need to choose one that is compatible with your skin. If a particular brand is not up to par, ditch it and try something else. Don’t feel the need to “finish off” something that is irritating your skin. How much did you spend on it, anyway? I get great results from plain old Colgate Shaving Cream, but others swear by the more expensive gels and soaps. I have not seen enough difference with these types of products to warrant the extra expense, but as they say, your miles may vary.

Always shave after you shower, when your skin is still warm and moist. If I haven’t shaved in a few days I will sometimes rub hair conditioner on my beard while in the shower, which is a great way of softening the hairs. Apply your shaving cream with a shaving brush as soon as you get out of the shower and let it sit on your face for at least a couple of minutes before you start shaving. A shaving brush is recommended because it will help raise and separate the hairs and create a thick lather of shaving cream. Wet the razor with hot water and start on an area that has a low concentration of hair (such as the lower neck). Move the razor with the grain (in the direction that the hair grows) in short strokes (no more than an inch at a time) and avoid going over the same spot twice. Rinse the razor frequently in hot water (after every 3 to 4 strokes). The more you rinse the razor, the less likely you are to get an uneven shave.

After going over a spot with the grain, you can shave against the grain for ultimate closeness. This is not recommended if you have extra sensitive skin or are prone to ingrown hairs. If you are prone to ingrown hairs, a product called Tend Skin is remarkable at preventing ingrown hairs and is definitely worth the money. African Americans and other men with curly facial hair are typically prone to ingrown hairs, and will benefit from Tend Skin.

Feel with your hands to make sure you haven’t missed a spot. You might want to also check with a side mirror to make sure your sideburns are even and level. Once you’re ready to rinse, start off with warm water. After all of the shaving cream is gone, rinse with cold water. This may be uncomfortable, but it helps tighten the skin and prevent infections. Afterwards, pat dry with a soft towel.

Depending on your skin type, you may want to use an aftershave moisturizer. Be sure to use one that does not irritate your skin, because your skin is at its most vulnerable after you shave. Do not use products containing alcohol, as they will dry your skin and prematurely age it. If you have any suspicion that your aftershave lotion is irritating your skin, discontinue use and either go a week without it or switch brands.

Follow these tips and you’re guaranteed to see an improvement in your appearance and a renewed joy in your morning shave.

Review of Bissel Healthy Home HEPA Vacuum Cleaner

My family recently went from a one dog household to a three dog household and were in desperate need for a better vacuum when we found theBissell Healthy Home HEPA Upright Vacuum. Our new Bissell vacuum has outperformed every other vacuum our family has tried or owned in the past, but like all vacuums, it does have its flaws. The suction and features are incredible and the reason why I recommend the Bissell Healthy Home, but the maneuverability and weight could be improved.

If you have several pets or are dealing with allergies, I would highly recommend the Bissel Healthy Home HEPA vacuum because of its almost unparalleled suction power. If, on the other hand, you are just looking for something to do light cleaning with and don’t have to worry about pets or allergens, there are several vacuums on the market that perform well and are slightly easier to handle.

One of the main reasons I think the Bissell vacuum is so great, has to do with its cleaning performance. After all, suction is the first thing you look at in a vacuum cleaner and with all the dogs I have running around, this is my main concern. According to the manufacturer, the vacuum has 12 amps of power, which was more or about the same as similar HEPA bagless models, but came at a competitive price. All that suction power translates into clean floors and carpets when you come through with this model, more so than other models that I tried.

On Berber carpet the Bissell Healthy Home is amazing, getting out dirt and pet hair that has been lodged in the pile for way too long. On the surface, there is no longer the noticeable presence of dog hair trapped in the loops of carpeting. The more obvious difference was apparent after I used the Bissell for several weeks and then steam cleaned all the carpets and rugs in my home. Generally, the water sucked back up during a regular steam cleaning was filled with dirt and dust to the point of being murky. After vacuuming on the same schedule I always have, the water sucked back into the steam cleaner was slightly discolored, but without the buildup of dirt and dust piling up at the bottom of the reservoir.

The parts of our home that are covered in hardwood or plush carpeting look even better, and are much easier to clean with the Healthy Home HEPA. In these sections of my home, a single pass through with the vacuum is enough to get the job done and the wide brush helps me get rooms done quicker. Because the cleaner is bagless, disposing of the dirt and hair picked up is quick and easy, I love not having to deal with bags. Other features and attachments include the crevice cleaner, dusting brush and Turbo Brush. All of these are invaluable, and the dusting brush especially, really make this machine a huge multitasking cleaner.

As for cons, the Bissell Healthy Home vacuum could be a little lighter, it is definitely not the easiest machine to move around. Overall maneuverability is a little disappointing, especially when it comes to hard to clean sections like stairs or awkward hallways. The extension wand and hose could also be made a little longer when you consider the effort it takes to pull the vacuum around.

Overall though, the performance and cost far outweighs any weight concerns. I am more than happy to wheel around the Bissell using a little more arm muscle than go back to the hair being left behind by other brands. Definitely a must for pet owners.

Prom Is Being Held Where?

Well, it is prom time again. Some have already happened and some are about to . I can remember the excitement building to that one special night. It hasn’t been that long ago, HONESTLY. The planning started a couple months in advance with a list of to-do’s.

Find a date. (check)

Start dieting. (check, well sort-of)

Start tanning. (check, yes I did to big no-no and went to tanning salons.)

Find the perfect dress. (check)

Find the perfect shoes. (check)

Find the perfect accessories. (check)

Schedule prom pictures. (check)

Order own corsage and boutonniere. (check, you just can’t let the guy mess up the corsage.)

Make hair appointment. (check)

Go to hair appointment. (check)

Well, I probably missed some things, but you get the idea. It has been… 15 years since my junior prom…gasp. This is part of prom. The planning or prep work. This next part is not what prom is supposed to be about. Read on!

What prompted me to this topic was an article in my local paper talking about prom activities at some of the local high schools. One of those schools my daughter will be attending in several years. She’s only two now. In the article it stated that one of the high schools was having their prom at the local memorial building. Fine. The other high school, the one my daughter will be attending some day, was having their prom at a casino 40 miles from the town the high school is in. Not fine, in my opinion. I know I sound old-fashioned and when I was in high school it probably would have sounded great. **PROM AT A CASINO 40 MILES FROM HOME.** Now that I am older, hopefully a little wiser and a mother this does not sound like a good idea.

There was no mention of whether or not a bus would be shipping them or not or if they could chose not to ride the bus. That might alter my opinion a little bit, but only a little. The driving bothered me quite a bit with all the excitement of prom – kids laughing, possibly drinking and careless. Going to a casino bothered me too. I’m sure parts of the casino were off limits, but to me opening the doors to a casino for prom is sending a bad message to teens. Everyone knows what happens in casinos. Gambling, drinking, smoking, etc. Not everybody who goes to a casino is reckless, but you hear enough about casinos that this does happen to some people. I just hope that in the years until my daughter reaches this age this school will have come up with a better place closer to home to hold prom. In the past it was held at the high school. What’s wrong with that?

My prom days, which I thought were fine at the time when I was 17 and 18 years old, were not any better. For my high school prom was held at the Days Inn Hotel. Looking back – A HOTEL! I never thought twice about it beforehand, but I do remember seeing kids go to rooms that had been rented to party in and do who knows what in. I remembered thinking would parents really rent hotel rooms for their kids or did the hotel allow high school kids to rent these rooms? Honestly, I was not one of them. We went to after prom at the local YMCA. My senior prom was the last one at that hotel. I heard it was due to fire hazards because of too many people in the banquet room and the front of the hotel was blocked because of a pa  rade line of prom guests for parents to view and take pictures of. I always wondered if there were other reasons for them to change locations from the hotel to the actual high school.

These are bad messages to be sending teens – proms at casinos 40 miles from home and at hotels. Why can’t a prom just be at the high school or a local building in town? Why does it need to be at a casino or hotel? What is the purpose of that? Prom is supposed to be about dancing, laughing and having fun with friends, not gambling, drinking or renting hotel rooms. Prom is a fun and happy time just before the end of schooldays and childhood when kids that have spent years together part ways to embark on a quest for their future. It does not need to involve casinos or hotels. Just leave it as a dance where teens can have fun planning for it beforehand and then enjoy the night of it with no pressures.

Product Review: Dirt Devil Kurv Hand Vacuum

The trouble with a traditional hand-held vacuum cleaner is that it is always packed away in a tangle of cords up in the back of the top shelf in your hall closet when you really need it. The famed international designer, Karim Rashid, has overcome this problem by designing a hand vacuum that looks like a curvaceous piece of fine sculpture. The Dirt Devil Kurv can be placed proudly among your fine pottery, candles, decorative centerpieces, and other display items. The shape of the Kurv evokes the minarets of exotic lands. The Kurv comes in several colors: champagne, choco-latte, sky blue and spice. The colors fit most home color palettes and allow the Kurv to blend right in until you make a mess.

Beneath the smooth plastic skin of Rashid’s fluid design, the Dirt Devil Kurv hides a practical 9.6 volt hand vacuum. The Kurv is about 16 inches tall and comes in two pieces. The bottom piece serves as a pedestal and charger for the vacuum in the top piece. When you spot some crumbs, dust, or dirt to be vacuumed, you draw the curve out of its pedestal as if you were pulling a sword from a scabbard or a stone. Then, you push a button at the tip of the handle to turn on the vacuum. Dirt is sucked in through a small 1-1/4 inch opening at the bottom of the vacuum. It works much like a hose attachment on a regular vacuum cleaner. The vacuum tip is rubberize to avoid marring furniture.

The Kurv delivers performance typically expected of a small hand vacuum. It’s great if you drop some crumbs or find a cobweb. However, I would not expect to effectively detail a car with it. The Kurv is designed to attack small spots of dirt rather than clean large areas. We have used it to vacuum up crumbs, popcorn, cobwebs, and a spider or two. For these quick tasks, the Dirt Devil Kurv has worked well. When you have cleaned up a significant amount of debris, you can simply twist apart the Kurv vacuum to reveal that the entire nose of the vacuum is actually a generously-sized dust bin. An easily removable cloth filter basket protects the motor.

There are only a few minor drawbacks to the Dirt Devil Kurv. First, the Dirt Devil Kurv is not a high-powered vacuum. It is good for small easily cleaned messes. Second, the Kurv does not have any brushes or any attachments. While this makes storage and use simple, it does limit the Kurv’s ability to beat particles out of carpet and other fabrics. Third, sometimes hard particles will get stuck in the dustbin and require some extra shaking to remove. Finally, the Kurv filter sometimes requires minor scraping by fingernail to get completely clean. Overall, these criticisms are minor nits compared to the convenience and utility provided by the Kurv.

With a retail price of about $50, the Kurv is a winner. In my opinion, the Dirt Devil Kurv provides an excellent value in an attractive and convenient package.
